FREMANTLE IN 1913. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

FREMANTLE IN 1913. Sydney, with its more or less bankrupt munici pal concerns, should take pattern by Fremantle. We have' the' mayor's annual report before us, and, under heading of trading concerns, notice that they show an increase in revenue of £139/8/2 on the previous year, while the expenditure under the same heading has fallen from £3134 last year (1912-13), to £2990 this year, the net profit to the ratepayers being £1357 this year, as against £1074 last year. . The revenue from the general markets has in creased by £133 ; the revenue from the sea baths has increased by £34; the sales in the fish mark ets aggregated £19,972, as against £19,131 the previous year. Not very big increases, certainly, but increases all the same. The stone crusher and tar-mixing plant was in stalled on the advice of the town engineer (Mr. ' Haynes) at a cost of £756/4/6. After allowing 6 per cent, interest off first cost, and 10 per cent, sinking fund, and paying for all renewals, wages, etc., and c...

TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. What the Congress Recommends. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. What the Congress Recommends. The Congress decided to forward the following recom mendations to the Minister in charge of Local Govern ment: — That the Conference of the Institute of Local Govern ment Engineers of Australasia, held in the form of a National Roads Congress, at the Sydney Town Hall, on April 7, 8 and 9, in this year 1914, present the following message to the Minister for Works on the subject of the I improvement of Shire roads within the State of New : South Wales. ! That this Conference is unanimously of opinion that I the crucial difficulty in the way of better roads is lack of j sufficient funds; all roads are starved, and until the finan- j cial position of Shires and Municipalities is considerably improved, it is useless for continual complaints to be levelled at Local Government administration. That Shire Councils be given the same power as Muni- | cipal Councils to borrow for permanent work. | That this Conference strongly recommend an eff...

DANKS' EXHIBIT AT THE R.A. SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

DANKS' EXHIBIT AT THE R.A. SHOW. Undoubtedly one of the features of the Royal Easter Show is Dunks' magnificent exhibit, in their own pavilion and grounds in- the machinery section. There is a fine showing of the Billabong Windmill, of which the sign says 'The Mill that Will.' The firm claim that this mill has fewer parts and greater efficiency, and is made entirely in Australia by this firm. The numbers of styles of pumps shown is truly wonderful, ranging from the small hand pump to the large centrifugal variety, which are operated with special oil engines, imported by this firm. There is a fine showintr of irrigation . olants. ninimr. troucliihtr and all accessories. A special exhibit of brass water fittings, made in the Sydney works, is a great tribute to Australian indus try, as well as displaying particular ingenuity in the arranging of the exhibit. There is a magnificent showing of fittings for all kinds of gas, as well as sanitary fittings and up-to-date interior^ fittings fo...

FRUITFUL FRUIT FARMS AT BATLOW. Realising the price, and demand for fruit, it certainly offers a big future profit for the fruitgrower, and those who are entering into the matter seriously, first of all want to know, where is The Most Suitable Land.

Areas from 12 to 55 acres can be obtained on easy terms of 10 per cent, deposit, balance by nine equal annual instalments, the first to be paid two years after date of contract.

SIPE'S PAINT OIL. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

? v ? SIPE'S PAINT OIL. . The fact that Sipe's Paint Oil has come into favor throughout Australia within four years speaks volumes, because in this country we don't rush the new thing because it is new. It has to prove itself. But Sipe's Paint Oil is not new. A pamphlet received from its Aus tralian representatives declares that it has been on the market in other parts of the world since 1884. We quote the following paragraph from the pamphlet in this respect: Sipes Paint Oil to-day is of the same quality as it was nearly 30 years ago. It will be the same SO years hence, unless we can improve it, but we cannot see how this is possible.' The pamphlet is worth possessing anyhow, as it treats with paint work from the scientific point of view in plain Australian. Even a novice to the trade could not fail to use Sipe's Paint Oil with advantage, after reading the pamphlet. The representatives, Messrs. D. O. Ramsay & Co., 52 Pitt Street, Sydney, will he pleased to send a copy, free...

The General Secretary's Report. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

The General Secretary's Report. It has been a reinatikable year — but more from the, standpoint of activity than incident. Everybody on the outfiring line of administration lias been busily engaged, chiefly in coping with the new force of Federal expansion, which is. the spirit . of our endeavor and the ideal of our achievement. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the rapid swing with which affairs have been conducted, and we gain satisfaction from the fact that there is much that is satisfactory and complete to show for our labors; onerous, strenuous and continuous as they have been. The original dream of a Federal Institute is be coming a prosaic reality in more than a nominal manner of speaking. The national scheme is almost being automatically consummated since certain preliminary difficulties, inseparable from extensive organisation, have been overcome. New South Wales led the way, Victoria followed, with Queensland next. Now the. remaining States are falling into line almost as a m...

His Excellency considers that the subject chosen for discussion, that of National Roads, is of great importance for Australia, and he hopes that the Conference will be able to put for ward proposals which will be generally acceptable, and which will pave the way for the adoption of a scheme which will give Australia a good system of well kept roads and highways.

TEMORA. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

TEMORA. Temora (N.S.W.), being a municipality, is not enjoined by law to employ a permanent qualified engineer. According to the mayor's report before us, it does not. It should. The revenue for 1913 was £3448 — sufficient to justify employment of an engineer of the higher qualifications. Of the expenditure of £3448/1/-, only £565/11/7 repre sents administrative expenses, so the Lord knp.ws what the officers are paid, beyond the fact that they are poorly paid. We do not notice any par ticular mention of a rather sensational reoort. which. we believe, was presented by the sanitary inspector, who, with the town clerk, the assistant clerk, thV roads overseer and the electrical engineer has to be paid out of that £565/11/7. In view of these - circumstances'' avc mention./ with, pleasure the ref erences to the splendid services of the staff, empty and cashless as the references are.

MELBOURNE'S ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

MELBOURNE'S ROADS. A penny increase is probable, and even more, possible, to the rates for the city of Melbourne (Vic). Some councillors consider the time has come for more advanced methods in forming the streets and beautifying them. They point to the fact that 25 years ago Sydney expended nearly £500,000 on her streets, and large sums are still being borrow ed for this purpose. The present opinion of nlost of the councillors is that there should be a loan of about £-100,000, and, that out of this, about £250,000 should be set aside for roadmaking. The roads on the outskirts of the city are, in many in stances, in a shocking condition, and the patch ing which they receive from time to time is of j. very temporary nature. It is believed that if wood blocks were laid down, or asphalt on con crete foundation, the roads would last twenty years, and the outlay would be amply justified by the saving in repairs. A few of the main roads through the outer sub urbs have a level asphalt surfa...

LANE COVE. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

LANE COVE. The annual report of the Lane Cove Council (N.S.W.) is artistically got up and goes compre hensively into things. The council has shown it self to be inspired by a broad-minded policy of pro gress. Attention was not merely confined to mat ters of minor incidence. Big things were attemp ted and some accomplished. The powers to advertise the district for settle ment or touring were acquired. Co-operation was given in the matter of an electric lierhtiner scheme for the northern suburbs. Great attention was given to railway and tramway matters. A deputation from the council urged the dredging of the river. Representations were made to the postal authorities, etc., etc. Little wonder that with this live council Lane Cove can report big progress. Certain Abercrombie (N.S.W.) ex-councillors, to whom fate — in the form of the last elections — had evidently been unkind, entertained the council employees. The hosts told the guests what faith, ful servants they were, and the guests ...

"LIQUID ASSETS." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 14 April 1914

'LIQUID ASSETS.' ''The Wag' delivers a thirsty homily on liquid assets: — The Mayor of Wolloiigong will really have to be more discreet in his choice of words. He is elected to prevent the intrusion of 'politics' of any variety into the council. Yet, in his annual report he comments favorably on 'the liquid assets' of the council. That is certain to alienate the sympathy of the temperance section of the rate payers—which comprise the majority in Wollon gong, as the Mayor should surely know. Of course,, he doesn't mean that the council has a 'good cup board.' The council has too many J's.P. on the premises for that. What the Mayor means by 'liquid assets' is the bank balance — as he subse quently explains. When we come to think of it a bank balance is a liquid asset. It does run some, in fact its always running — out. Where the Mayor made the mistake, however, was by inferring that it was 'on tap.' : . ? ? : ? ♦ ? ' ?
